The ethos of More Meadows is that it is not for profit, it is not commercial, it is a community knowledge sharing organisation. If you'd like to form a Meadows Hub in your area and be included on the forum email hello.moremeadows@gmail.com for more information.

It would seem sensible and appropriate for groups to be arranged along wildlife corridors so there was a focus on building a network. I see there is an Avon Valley group which is the kind of thing, should we have more river groups or green-belt groups that focus on landscape scale work. They could overlay the regional groups and in some instances cross from one regional group to another. Maybe they should have a different name, not 'groups' but corridors, areas or projects.

I agree with John. I manage a landscape scale project called Clyst Valley Regional Park - an area half the size of Exeter, taking in most of the National Trust Killerton estate. It's all in East Devon, but I'd like to create a sub-project, as the emphasis is mostly going to be on creating and restoring floodplain meadows.

I also agree with John, it would be great to arrange the groups or the conversations around the best opportunities for linking the sites physically and contributing to the Nature Recovery Network. But maybe this will start to happen if enough people join. At the moment, it is really useful to see what others are working on wherever they are.

Hi all,
We set up the regional forum areas to get started or reflect activity already underway. If you wish to set up a group for an area that isn't listed, please do get in touch. These things are often organic and the group focus will reflect the interests and geographical areas where people live and identify with.
You are all correct, as it certainly makes sense to look at catchments, or connective habitat with a joined up approach.
Let us know how the forum can help.

Tracey
